  • Microdata, Microformats and/or RDFa ….it’s about Semantics@ismepete #thinkvis
  • The Semantic Web"a web of data that can beprocessed directly and indirectlyby machines.“ Tim Berners-Lee
  • Microdata Microdata is an HTML specification used to nest semantics within existing content on web pages. Search engines, web crawlers, and browsers can extract and process Microdata from a web page and use it to provide a richer browsing experience for users. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microdata_(HTML5)@ismepete #thinkvis
  • Microformats A microformat is a web-based approach to semantic markup which seeks to re-use existing HTML/XHTML tags to convey metadata and other attributes in web pages and other contexts that support (X)HTML, such as RSS. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microformats@ismepete #thinkvis
  • RDFa RDFa (or Resource Description Framework–in–attributes) is a W3C Recommendation that adds a set of attribute-level extensions to HTML, XHTML and various XML-based document types for embedding rich metadata within Web documents. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RDFa@ismepete #thinkvis
  • You Can Use Any Of These ….Google recommends microdata@ismepete #thinkvis
